Lately I was playing some Robin Hood campaigns and there are many. I am looking for a GOOD ROBIN HOOD CAMPAIGN, the topic says all.

Of course I played The Adventures of Robin Hood by Gregory Koteles, but it is incomplete. He only posted the first two out of six planned scenarios. His campaign ends when the original story just started.

Anybody can help?

Many good scenario designers were discouraged, since more and more inexperienced designers started creating Robin Hood campaigns, and the decent scenario designers didn't want to submit something based on a repetitious theme. I haven't been able to find a good one either (except for the first one I played, by Gregory Koteles).

As a fellow designer, I made a robin hood type of campaign, but it was one of my first scenarios. It was 3 years ago when I made it, but when I found AoK Heaven, I conquerorized it so it was more up to date. The War of Britain is the name, and it is based more on King Richard than Robin Hood.

I can not find any g0od Robin Hood campaigns besides the unfinished one .

What if someone here continued it...? That would be an interesting idea, if someone is in need of inspiration.

CV12 Hornet's plan-of-the-day for 26 October 1944:

"Today will be a field day! Air department dust off all overheads, removing any snoopers which may be adrift and sweep out all corners of the Philippines, sending to incinerator or throwing over the side (first punching hole in bottom) any Nip cans, APs or AKs still on topside. Gunnery department assist as necessary. Engineering, continue to pour on the coal. Medicos, stand by with heat-rash lotion. Damage Control, observe holiday routine.

@ Jawn Henry

That’s a brilliant idea.

If one of the good designers, I don't design anymore , could just start with the known legend, just were Gregory stopped, would be terrific.

Ingo van Thiel? Gordon Farrell? Marc Stoker? Dark_Warrior_1? The Kestrel? ElfTheHunter? Luke Gevaerts? CknChaos? BrandNewCar? Nosmo King? Dark_Aro? Where are you?

WHO TAKES UP THE GAUNTLET?

I can't. I don't even have the time to properly finish ATW. Sounds like a good idea, though.

Luke has an excuse, because I really want to see ATW completed. It’s one of the announced campaigns worth staying here.

Is anybody else on the list with a valid excuse?

I do have my new project wich is keeping me fairly busy, but this sounds like an interesting proposal. I also design better, believe it or not, when I have multiple projects going.

Tanneur, I'll write you an e-mail.

heh,Robin hood was one of my initial projects,but like Darkmaster said,the other submissions discouraged me from ever really starting it and i'm quite busy with my current project(no title).

perhaps once i'm done with it,i could maybe reconsider Robin hood,unless of course,someone decides to take it up instead.If i remember right,BNC did design a robin hood campaign,although it was only a demo.

I thought Tom Blum's Robin Hood scenario had a lot of potential. It had all the mistakes of a new designer, but I had the creativity slightly higher than I seen in the reviews. I wonder if Tom Blum is still around?

I just started a Robin Hood campaign . The lack of good Robin Hood campaigns has inspired me . WDSS can hold for a while... (it is really annoying testing a long scenario over and over for bugs )

Creativity is disputed in the reviews. Do you mean higher than the average score or even higher than my rating? I gave creativity a 3.0, but it got a 1.0 and a 2.0 from my colleagues.

@ All

That’s great. We all like the story and the caracters. I will review some more until yours comes out. So we are looking forward to a good Robin Hood campaign from Dark_Aro or BrandNewCar or Cknchaos or Dark_Warrior_1_ or maybe all of you.

Ok... question. Do you guys like the origonal Robin Hood legend (meaning the exact story), or would you rather see a different type of Robin Hood campaign.

I was reading through the real storyline yesterday, and I did not like what I saw. Not enough excitment. What would you rather see?

a. Real Robin Hood Storyline

b. My Robin Hood Storyline

xavill: I think you meant "prize." Heck, no one enters these contests for the prize! (Well, I did win a kewl digital camera from ES for the "Heroes" contest!)

Dark Aro: What's this, polling people to see what they want??? Where's your personal vision??? The insatiable drive to tell the story your own and to hades with the critics??? (...but since you asked, keep it historically accurate )

Lol... thank you for answering the poll, Gordon Farrell . I usually like to know what the people who download/do not it think . I decided a while ago to do a mix . The real Robin Hood story, with my twists of fate added . So it is not so predictable.

Oh yeah! Welcome back (never saw you post in SD for a while... before I even joined, I think ).

Actually, what I also think is that you should emphasize RTS over RPG. RPG will just make it seem like GK's Robin Hood. And RTS levels are better to have in your portfolio if you're ever interested in doing this professionally.

I usually try to add some strategy to them . I am not going to make it easy... more challenging than easy. And I am probably going to make difficulty level settings for real pros .
